We get asked a lot of questions here at Induct for Work, but here are the most common.
Inductions are the processes or training sessions used by employers to introduce employees to the companies they will be joining or the new positions they will be starting. The aim of an induction is to prepare a new employee for their new role and integrate them into the company and may include an introduction to the new industry, training for their new role, an explanation of expectations, role requirements and the highlighting of safety procedures or issues, among other things. Inductions may last a few hours, a few days or even a few weeks or months, depending on the scope of the new role being inducted. You can read more about Inductions within our articles section
While workplace inductions are not required in all industries and all workplaces, every single employer in Australia has a legal obligation to provide employees with adequate instruction and supervision. Furthermore, inductions are mandatory in others such as construction, where two forms of Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) induction are required (construction induction training and a site induction). Such industries usually also require employers to provide evidence that this induction has taken place. Regardless of whether or not you are required to provide employees (or volunteers and visitors in some cases) with a formal induction, there are many reasons why you absolutely should provide an induction for every new employee. They are outlined within this article and clearly show why the time and effort required to create an induction program are well worth it, for both the employer and the new employee.

OHS (sometimes called OH&S) stands for Occupational Health and Safety. OHS is the term used to cover all things related to the health and safety of employees within their place of work. OHS includes such issues as workplace hazards and various safety procedures among other things, and the aim of OHS is to ensure all workplaces are safe and healthy to work in. Each Australian state has its own OHS laws (and within each state, most industries have their own laws), so be sure to consult an employment lawyer about the laws pertaining to your industry.

This will vary depending on the size of your organisation and the industry within which you work. Typically, inductions are organised by Human Resources and conducted by the new employee’s immediate supervisors or team leaders. In some companies and industries, however, induction may be conducted in several phases over several days, weeks or, even, months by different people in different parts of a business. There is no rule about who should conduct induction, but if you do have questions, be sure to check with your Human Resources or recruitment people. If you don’t have a HR department to consult, seek the advice of an employment lawyer about who should conduct your inductions, what the rules are for your industry and what needs to be covered.
